What do you want if for, Internet, games, school work? Will it be moving round much, do you want a big screen 17" of a small lappy 12.1"?
#2
15" screen prob, use for internet and school work mainly. Prob not moving around much if at all

Well for that money you have much choice. One rule is if you get a lappy with vista you must have 2gb ram. At £500 mark make sure you go with a core 2 duo processor.
The Dell 6400 is a well respected machine. Heres MikeT post.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deal/53229/dell-inspiron-6400-notebook-1-86ghz

This is the cheapest I've seen with a 17" screen -- £349 + £8 delivery

I wouldn't go with the sony as you pay over the top for the spec. You are paying for the name. Also sony ones are more likley to be stolen.

If you keep to the big brands and just make sure you get core 2 duo or Turon64 x2 with 2gb ram you wont go far wrong.

As for the acer above it has a sempron processor which isnt that fast and uses a fair bit of power and runs hot. Also only has 1gb ram so replacing this will cost you £35.

how about this Toshiba . Order it online so that you can use 5% off code and don't forget quidco. All this brings price down to £360 which is not bad at all. I have a friend like your mum, I'm going to recommend this to him too :)
